This ongoing series offers the opportunity to learn the original choreography to some of Broadway’s finest shows, presented by actual cast members straight from the stage to the studio.
On April 3rd and 5th, “Mamma Mia!” dance captain,
Allyson Carr visited Broadway Dance Center to teach the choreography from the show’s finale “Dancing Queen.” Students couldn’t help but sing-along to the well-know ABBA classic as they learned the combination, which is taught at the Broadway auditions for “Mamma Mia!” Though not technically intricate, the choreography challenged students to showcase their individual personalities within the movement. Following the fun combination, BDC students joined Allyson in a Q&A about her dance career which has included professional performance in ballet, hip hop, modern, and theater! When asked to give audition advice, Carr responded, “We are watching you the minute you walk in the room. It doesn’t matter if you’re the best dancer in the world; You have to be someone that we are drawn to work with.”
